fiscal cliff or the debt ceiling. they do not talk about monthly job reports. they talk about things like how is my kid's school performing? will make it have a job when they get out of college? can i pay my bills? can i pay the mortgage? you hear all too often that political leaders talk about things in terms that are not really relevant. the outcome might be relevant, but not relevant to the people in our states. we need to be more relevant. when i first ran for governor, i used to tell a story about something i started doing about 25 years ago. when i started working, i would pack a lunch every day. it is a lunch i still most days. chisam which nests cheese sandwich on wheat bread with a little bit of mayo -- cheese sam went on wheat bread with a little bit of mayo. i bring the same lunch. i get the same thing every day and i'm perfectly happy with that. i pack it in a little brown bag lunch. i eat it in the car or at the capitol or anywhere else. when i ran for governor, i said we need a little bit of brown bag common sense in our government. as it first, my grandmother raised my moth

quote piece of the leverage that conservatives have. you didn't want to fight over the debt ceiling because you thought you can't do tha you have to pay the government's bills. do you think this fight over priority is worth shutting the government down? >> we're not interested in shutting the government down. what happens on march 1 is spending goes down automatically. march 27 is when the moment you're talking about, the continuing resolution expires. we are more than happy to keep spending at those levels going on into the future while we debate how to balance the budget, grow the economy, create economic opportunity. that's the kind of debate the country deserves. by the way, if we keep going down this path, we will have a debt crisis. it's not an if question. it's a when question. this isn't a republican or democrat thing. it's a math thing. we have to get serious with this problem if we want to save people from the problems that result from a debt crisis. >> let me challenge you from a critic further on the left. a lot of the centrist economists may disagree with you in some areas but agree about the impending deb

debt ceiling he said he was doing so because the national debt was at an outrageous $8 trillion. i want to quote the president saying $8 trillion, that's trillion with a t. it is now over $16 trillion and climbing. he's not worried about it at all. indeed he calls it progress. you remember his campaign slogen. he says it is forward. i've got news for the president. if washington's debt is going forward, america's economy is going backward. instead of magging government we need to lead america to a place where she can become the land of opportunity. where she can become the place of growth and opportunity. we should put all of our eggs in that basket as conservatives and republicans. we need folks to stop this president from taking america so far off the ledge that we cannot get back. we must stop the bankrupting of our federal government. but we as conservatives must dedicate our energies to growing the economy to showing younger generations on winning the future. we need to grow the middle class. that doesn't line government. if more government were the answer to our problems, our econ

lot of debates over the debt ceiling. the republicans, you heard bobby jindal saying we have to stop being the stupid party. i think they are trying to figure out how do we avoid talking about the 47%. republicans are looking to change their tone for elections in 2014 and 2016. in terms of the politics on the fiscal stuff and the politics, the fight is the same. republicans don't want to raid taxes. the president wants to cut spending less severely. same fight we have seen. >> you see it the same way, same old, same old. >> it is a fight that will don't happen. they are starting to position themselves and republicans are looking to 2016 to say we are going to change what has happened and jindal signalled that in his speech earlier this week. >> perry, another topic, gun violence, no doubt we have been since newtown. there are going to be hearings on capitol hill this week. patrick leahy, he has five witnesses. the list has come out who he is going to have talking about gun violence and someone that a lot of people are familiar with is wayne la pierre of the nra will be testifying before congress. what was he thinking in putting, i think he has more pro g

lot of pressure to do that. republicans agreed to raise the debt ceiling. that took away a little bit of their leverage going into negotiations at the end of february. here comes paul ryan. where has he been? he is making this line in the sand now. i think the white house is concerned because this could hurt the economy going forward if we go through these deep cuts and right now the white house is saying we need to keep the economy moving. we have to keep all eyes on that and continue to have growth and jobs. there is concern for the white house. >> ryan took one of his famous charts on "meet the press." you can tell immediately what he thinks the problem is, more spending cuts are needed. paul ryan says increasing revenue is off the table for now. the gop, the tax hikes during the fiscal cliff stuff. do they do it again? >> he was also asked and side stepped whether or not you could close loopholes. it is another way to get revenue. that is what david gregory asked him. he had a nonresponse response to that. there are other ways to get revenue than across the board tax hike. we know

been through a fiscal cliff debate. we are working our way through a debt ceiling debate. i think in a responsible manner. with an eye towards trying to fix some problems. >> when you look at the options out there. president obama budget proposal and paul ryan's offer, they both don't do what guys like you say need to be done. balancing the budget for a long time. now you guys have a proposal or coming with a proposal that says you'll balance the budget in ten years. i ask paul ryan this, i can't get an answer. how? it's going to hurt. >> new baselines now in the budget. i mean, obviously, as we know, some of the difficulty and the differences in washington are centered around the method of accounting. whether it's static or dynamic. because it's static, when you raise taxes, that $650 billion of additional taxes that went in because of the cliff deal, that adjusts the baseline. that is going to make the numbers look somewhat differently. right? we'll have to make some choices. there's no question about it. >> right. >> but we have committed to putting a budget out there that will actually bring it to balance within ten years. now -- >> but you can't tell me what because there has to be some big changes in order to do that. >> we haven't seen the numbers yet. but i'm telli

find that common ground? do you think it's possible with the horrible debt, $16.5 and counting trillion. and they said, okay, we are going to delay the debt ceiling situation for now and want really address it, immediately, pushing the can down the road. is this proverbial constant delay, delay, delay until they can get anything together? >> i don't blame president obama for all of this. i do think he inherit the a very polarized nation. richard nixon and ronald reagan won re-election with 48 and 49 states. obama squeaked out a victory here. one thing obama has to do, even if it's not his fault, he has to lead the country. the nation is in an interesting position, where the right has turned very right and the red has turned very red and the blue is very blue. but on issues like immigration and the budget, i think there is a chance to move forward and i think the democrats on the hill will urge the president to work in a more bipartisan fashion, because if you look at the senate races in 2014, there is a lot of democratic senator who is have to get re-elected in swing or red sta

will find it to the cult dissolve any other problems we are facing. debt ceilings, issues of healthcare. proverbs notes this, without a vision, the people perish. they do not literally perish. they just bicker and fight and become so polarized they cannot get anything done. we are in need of a new common, national vision. not once only democratic or solely republican. we need at least one goal where we can come together. that is where we need to go. god has given you a unique gift, mr. president. you have the ability to cast vision and inspire people. you should have been a preacher. [laughter] [applause] god actually has you exactly where god wants you. yesterday you begin to lay out a vision for us in your inaugural address was very powerful and compelling. somewhere we have got to find and forge one or two that dreams or visions that people on the right and they left, republicans and democrats, can come together and back hands on this. you hinted towards that yesterday. we have to remember our picture of the promised land. when we do that, anything is possible in america. i offer one small example of the power of vision from the church i serve in kansas
